 Im starting to hunt down wire locations as i plan my install of this matrix 70.5 and im up to the tach wire.  i guess im not finding it in my service manuel or on alldata.  I just read a post about there possibly not being a actual tach wire and maybe going off an injector wire.  Is there a better way?  This car has a factory tach in the dash and im guessing one of those wires makes it work.

I've found the tach wire (white) behind the dash in my 2001 mitsubishi galant.  The install guide says i should get a reading of 1v to 6v ac with on the multimeter. It also says in multi-coil ignition systems the reading can be lower.  I'm geting .4v up to a little over 1v as the rpms increase, is this enough to satisfy the remote start system? I know this is simple stuff to some of you guys, I just want to be cautious and not screw anything up.  thank guys.

If the voltage increases linearly with the increase of RPMs, it is the right wire.  You will have to connect it to see if it will work for you.

 Im trying to tag all my wires before i go on to the next step of the install in my 2001 mitsubishi galant.  so far all the info you guys have given me has been write on the money.  now Im looking to tap a wire for the park/neutral safety switch.  the actual switch is under the hood.  Do i need to run a wire through the fire wall or can i find it under the dash somewhere.  color and location would be helpful.  I only get to work on this every couple of days so this is turning into alot of little steps.  I still love it though.  thanks guys.

I asked a question a few days ago about finding a park, neutral safety switch wire to tap into on my 2001 mits galant ( automatic ) but havent gotten a reply.  I know the actual switch is under the hood, can i find it under the dash or do i need to run the wire though the fire wall?

Chances are the wire you need is going to be at the switch.  It will not go back into the vehicle.  Usually the switch is the last stop before the actual solenoid of the starter.  I am still trying hard to figure out why they need the neutral safety switch.  If you tag the starter wire at the ignition switch, the neutral switch will take care of itself.  If it is in neutral or park it will allow the car to start, if not in neutral or park the car will not start.  Does anybody know why you have to access the neutral safety switch?

You can just ground the neutral safety wire from the Clifford. The car will prevent it from attempting to crank if you somehow left it in gear.
